Understanding PRISMS Reporting

The Provider Registration and International Student Management System (PRISMS) is a secure database for the purpose of administering the ESOS Act. It provides a means for providers to comply with legislative requirements by:

Issuing bona-fide confirmation of enrolments (CoE) as ‘evidence of enrolment’, and reporting changes in course enrolment, particularly where study ceases or the duration of the study changes. PRISMS also facilitates the monitoring of student compliance with visa conditions, as well as compliance with the ESOS Act.

This session will provide an overview of the PRISMS User Guide, how to create a CoE, types of Student Course Variations (SCV’s), responsibilities for reporting SCV’s and recommended use of keying of standardised comments, reporting timeframes, data exports and monitoring or reporting compliance obligations.
